Yoga + Cats= Amazing
I have been practicing yoga on and off for the past 20 years and love what the practice provides to my mind, soul and body…
All yoga experiences are very special in their own right but last night I had an incredibly unique, special, soul soothing session like no other that I had to share.
Yoga with the wonderful cats at the Good Mews cat shelter…true fact!
Not only did they observe and hold court there was also a fair amount of participation from these furry friends…even a downward dog or two (sorry but could not resist)!
If you live in or find yourself in the ATL Metro area make sure to check out the Good Mews website for the yoga schedule. Even if yoga is not your gig still check out Good Mews…it is an amazing organization that is a cage free and no kill cat shelter…good people doing good things!

Laurel Canyon Vibe

PatchOne

PatchTwo

PatchThree

My fashion roots lie firmly in the 60’s and 70’s but when it comes to the summer loving time of year I lean HEAVY into the super groovy 1970’s style..which I like to call my Laurel Canyon vibe,where hippie meets beach bum with a decent amount of rock and roll for good measure!

The vibe looks something like this…macrame accessories, large hoop earrings, oversized sunglasses, halter top, chunky cork or wood platform shoes and a perfectly worn in pair of jeans.

What I really needed in order to complete the perfect Laurel Canyon vibe was a pair of patch covered jeans. So two plus years, many patches and many sewing mishaps later I would like to debut my latest and greatest project…

Peace. Love and Patches,

Mad for Macrame

macrame bag

To know me is to know my obsession with macrame. From accessories to hanging plant holders to my well curated macrame owl collection featured in my laundry room…I am all in!

So when one has a deep connection with a knotty natural hand craft like macrame you can only imagine one’s (my) absolute surprise and delight when I was window shopping at Pucci (dream of all dreams!) and found this BEYOND AMAZING bag. I could not help myself and had to take the bag for a spin around the shop…it felt so right, looked so great and was SOOO me but as all things must come to an end I reluctantly yet fiscally responsibly put the bag back on its pedestal and moved on.

March MuuMuu of the Month

MarchMMOTM

MarchMMOTM2

In like a lion and out like a lamb…and somewhere in between is a day of frolicking through the magnificent and stunning gardens and conservatories at the must visit Longwood Gardens.

March is a tricky month that is still holding onto Winter as it teases us with the hope of Spring. So during this turbulent time of year I must surround myself in all things Spring, so here goes…

All Pleated and Ready to Go!

March On MuuMuu

This month the muumuu marches…okay so maybe more of a rain poncho but close enough to count! Incredibly motivated and moved to have been part of a greater empowered group of individuals…Hear us Roar! Make it Matter! Power to the People!

Peace,

MuuMuu of the Month…

mmotmone

 

…this muumuu’s got moves and here’s a small clip to prove it in the magical country of India.

India is one of my all time favorites that transports me to another world that is a total sensory overload (in the best of ways) that includes the gorgeous colorful clothing and textiles to the various exotic scents to the amazing and delicious veggie friendly cuisine and the music that sets the ultimate soundtrack.

Namaste,
